Southern focusing on finishing strong
BATON ROUGE - As Southern welcomes Alabama State into town, the two teams couldn't be heading in more opposite direction.
The Jags, who are 4-1 in the SWAC, are on an impressive three game winning streak. The Hornets, who sit at 3-3 in the conference, are on a three game losing streak.
Southern Head Coach Dawson Odums says the team's main focus is finishing down the stretch strong.
"Well we told our guys their are 30 days left in the season. So what are you going to decide," said Odums. "Starting this week, it's about sacrifice. For 30 days, give yourself up for the reward that's at the end."
Working in their favor, Southern plays the next three games at home. If the Jags sweep the next three games, that should set up a matchup for the SWAC West crown against Grambling in the Bayou Classic
